  • Transitioning Your LEF-Based EDI System Design Flow to OpenAccess

    The trend of combining analog and digital circuits on a single chip has been growing for several years. More recently I'm seeing more and more designers improve their productivity by transitioning their designs to Open Access (OA) and taking advantage of the interoperability between Virtuoso and...

  • ARM TechCon: Inside Story of a 14nm FinFET Tapeout

    The next frontier in semiconductor design is the 14nm process node, and it will come with a new type of transistor, the FinFET. 14nm FinFET technology moved closer to reality at the ARM TechCon conference Oct. 30, 2012, where a Cadence sponsored technical session announced a 14nm test chip tapeout using...

  • TSMC Forum: An Update on 20nm, 3D-IC, and 16nm FinFETs

    TSMC, the world's largest semiconductor foundry, is thinking big when it comes to next-generation process technology. At the TSMC Open Innovation Platform (OIP) Ecosystem Forum Oct. 16, TSMC described reference flows for 20nm and for multi-die integration, and revealed that ARM and TSMC are working...

  • how to get FAB pdks

    Greetings! Can anyone guide me how exactly can we (a University IC Design Lab) get a FAB PDK for our projects? Is the NCSU CDK a substitute for the actual FAB PDKs? Can the GDS II file of a project using NCSU CDK sent to the FAB for fabrication? If so, what is the difference between the FAB's PDK...

  • Aging simulation with RelXpert and Eldo

    Hello everyone I would like to simulate the aging behavior on circuit-level of the circuits built by bulk-Si CMOS technology. I know that there is a tool named “RelXpert” (combined with UltraSim) in Analog Design Environment (ADE) of Cadence Virtuoso can be used for aging (NBTI and HCI) simulation...

  • Webinar: Cadence, Mentor Find Common Ground on PDK Standards

    Representatives of Cadence and Mentor Graphics don't often appear in the same webinar, but there's a new development in the industry that was important enough to bring these two EDA vendors together Dec. 7. That development is OpenPDK , a process design kit standardization effort launched by...

  • User Presentation: Automatically Generated SKILL PCells Speed PDK Development

    Process design kit (PDK) developers have been using the SKILL language to code PCells (parameterized cells) for over two decades. SKILL is a flexible, extensible, Lisp-based language that can do just about anything a programmer wants to do. But is there an easier way to create PCells? Yes, according...

  • The Case For SKILL PCells and PDKs

    Controversy is continuing over the use of Cadence SKILL language PCells versus "interoperable" parameterized cells written in Python. What's getting lost in this discussion is an important question: What are the advantages of SKILL for process design kit (PDK) development and analog/custom...

  • Ten Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know About SKILL

    The Cadence SKILL language has received some press lately as part of an ongoing debate over process design kit (PDK) standards. This post isn't about that. Rather, it's about the story behind SKILL, a venerable language that's far more than just a format for describing PCells in custom IC...

  • Seven Requirements For An Open PDK Standard

    My May 13 blog discussed the significance of the Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) OpenPDK Coalition , which is seeking to define an open standard that will allow foundries to create a single process design kit (PDK) representation that can be translated into different input formats. What is necessary...
